Sometimes being first isn’t what you expected.
Eighteen-year-old Nick Grawski doesn’t want to follow Daddy Dearest’s rules any longer. He's going to prove he's meant to be a dancer—not a lawyer—and he is not going to stay away from Em just because his father demands it. He needs to show Em that—this time around—he’s there to stay and that he won’t break her heart again. Even when her world goes down to shit, even when he finds out his dad may have been trying to protect him all along, even if being there for one another is harder than falling in love.
ALWAYS SECOND BEST is a novel of hope and heartbreak and broken dreams. It’s a novel about falling in love and discovering that being first isn’t always what matters.
I FORGET MYSELF in his kiss, in the way his arms tighten around me, in the way my entire body wants to get even closer.
One of his hands cups the side of my face. I jump so my legs are around his waist. He’s holding me and I deepen our kiss. I don’t ever want to stop.
“Em.” His voice is hoarse and he walks forward, my legs still around him, until my back hits the mirror.
His lips trail down my face, to my collarbone, and his hands detangle mine from his neck to bring them over my head.
I can feel him, all of him. “I’ve missed you,” he says.
And I’ve missed him too. So much. My brain’s screaming for me to stop, my heart’s hesitating. What am I doing? What are we doing? Setting ourselves up for failure again.
“I have to go.” My voice shakes. “I have to go,” I repeat and Nick slowly puts me back on my feet before stepping away.
“What are you talking about?” He’s almost out of breath.
“I have to go.” I can’t look at him, or I’ll never leave.
I rush out. My feelings and my heart trailing behind.
